A recent model of volume and solute microvascular exchange in the renal medulla was extended by simulating the deposition of NaCl, urea, and water into the medullary interstitium from the loops of Henle and collecting ducts with generation rates that undergo spatial variation within the inner medullary interstitium. To build an exponential osmolality gradient in the inner medulla, as suggested by Koepsell et al. (H. Koepsell, W. E. A. P. Nicholson, W. Kriz, and H. J. Höhling. Pflügers Arch. 350… CONTINUE READING
